But what is with the money they are throwing around? It seems like Jones thinks they can win this year, right away. This could end up hurting them down the road when they have a more developed team that is capable of winning.
THey gave Ferguson some money, I agree, but the Henry deal was actually pretty cheap, especially now that Lucas just made a mega deal paying him over $8 mil a year. Henry's $4 mil a year looks very meager compared to $8 mil a year, when the two are very close in talent.
Think about it, you can't find starting CB material in this league for less than $3-4 mil a year. It's just not going to happen. And if you can, they probably SHOULDN'T be starting.
Dallas is fine. They had $20 mil in cap room to spend before free agency, they've signed 4 starters in free agency (Bledsoe, Ferguson, Henry, Rivera) and still have some wiggle room and will still be able to sign two first round draft picks.
Plus the signings will not handicap Dallas for years to come. Take Ferguson's contract for example. It's front loaded, so if Dallas decides to cut him after 2 years, the cap hit won't be that bad.
I'd rather Dallas throw money around and make a legitimate effort to improve the team than sit on their hands and go 6-10 like they did last year.
